The Monthly Challenges are brought to you by PG Sunnyvale’s F10 Fitness Manager Suzie Williams to promote the new F10 20-20-20 classes which are geared towards climbers. F10 20-20-20 will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm starting in June!
This new class will NOT require F10 Fundamentals or any lifting experience. Check out the class description below!

F10 20/20/20 is focused specifically for the climber as well as the fitness enthusiast who would like to gain more mobility and body weight strength and control. The class is broken down into 20 minute of mobility, flexibility, and balance training. The next 20 minutes is body weight strengthening, targeted to gymnastics type movements such as ring exercises, handstand progressions, palette movements, and midline accessory strength and stability. The last 20 minutes will focus on aerobic training using running, rowing, box jumps, and various other movements to train the cardiovascular system. If you are looking for a class that will help to improve your climbing and overall fitness, this is it! No fitness background required. Anyone is welcome to attend.
